Topic: Always Victorious [Wednesday April 27, 2016]

Text: 2 Samuel 8:1-8

Key Verse: “Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus: and the Syrians became servants to David, and brought gifts. And the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went” (2 Samuel 8:6).

There is a time in a man’s life that he sits down to count the blessings of God. David has been a man of war, conquering kingdoms and leading many people captive from various countries and provinces. In our text, He continued with his exploit; moved against Moab and subdued them; smote Moth and converted the citizens into his servants that later brought gifts to him.

He moved against Zohah and smote the king. Syria also fell under his sword and he put garrisons there and the people became his servants. Then, after slaughtering those that vexed Israel and had achieved a measure of peace for the children of Israel, he began to enjoy divine protection wherever he went. Many believers today live under constant attack from unbelievers and the world. These unbelievers, in some cases, have made life so unbearable for some children of God that they are nearly confused about what to do next. Unfortunately, they do not see the need to tell God to give them a divine solution. These “enemy nations” must be defeated. But this cannot be possible except God Himself takes full control. It was when the Almighty took charge of David’s warfare against the enemy nations that he began to record victories.

Today, you can begin to record victories against that sickness, joblessness and the general affliction from the enemy besetting your life. And when these victories eventually emerge, you will enjoy preservation and protection wherever you go from the God whose faithfulness is great.

Thought for the day: You are only defeated when you accept defeat
